ABSTRACT
This article reveals that winter wheat yields in British Home Grown Cereals Authority's (HGCA) Recommended List (RL) trials have declined slightly in 2008 as more results have accumulated. With results from only five more sites to come, overall yield is still nearly 6% above the five-year average and well up on last season, says RL Manager Jim McVittie. However, determining what drives relative outputs on second wheat sites, where eyespot and variable take-all levels complicate the picture, is never easy, he explains.
